Islam experience afternoon.
We have been so fortunate to have had Mrs Khalid join us to share her Muslim faith and tell tell about the main festivals Muslims celebrate. We found out about the five pillars of Islam, Ramadam, Ed ul fitr and Ed ul Adha. The children were especially inquisitive about Ramadam and how disciplined Muslims have to be in order to fast and the reasons why they do this. As we have been learning about Christian baptism in our current R.E unit, Mrs Khalid also shared with us how Muslims welcome new babies into the faith.
The children especially enjoyed trying some traditional foods that would be eaten during the Ed ul Fitr celebration which included Sevaya Kheer (a milk based pudding) and date biscuits. We has lots of fun and learned so much about the Muslim faith. Thank you Mrs Khalid for giving up your time to come and work with us 😊
